New Halotherapy Solutions device delivers salt therapy in treatment rooms

By
HaloPocket can be used as an opening or closing ritual for facials or massages that support respiratory health
– Steve Spiro, CEO

There’s growing consumer interest in halo (salt) therapy since COVID-19 as people look to improve their respiratory health and boost their immune systems.

Indeed, some spas may already have dedicated salt rooms or halotherapy booths. But now Halotherapy Solutions has revealed HaloPocket, a 19cm tall personal halogenerator, to deliver dry salt therapy benefits at the press of a single button, in just five minutes.

“My goal is to have HaloPocket used as either an opening and closing ritual for either a facial or massage that supports respiratory health or to give any treatment an extra boost, just like spas upsell a mask or special technique,” says Halotherapy Solutions’ founder and CEO Steve Spiro. “Plus, it’s an excellent, innovative product to sell in a spa’s retail store and online – especially in the ‘new normal’ world of COVID-19.”

The HaloPocket, which retails at US$1,299 (€1,136, £1,029), is already being offered at leading operators such as the Carillon Miami Wellness Resort in the US.

Halotherapy Solutions distributes worldwide via companies such as Drom UK and Spa Vision.
